The Washington area is doing better than some other parts of the country, as the New York Times never tires of pointing out, again and again. And now Sean Hannity‘s airing a special expose tonight called BoomTown on how we’re sucking the rest of the United States dry.
“We’ll investigate BoomTown: Washington D.C., where the business politics is making a lot of people—-their friends, their cronies—-rich, and they’re using your money,” Hannity promises in a tease.
Later in the video, author Peter Schweizer describes Washington as “a place that is awash with money.”
“Influence and access…political power….private corporate jets…” Schweizer continues. Then another voice cuts in, as wine is poured into a glass on-screen: “They like the higher-end stuff.”
With all this talk about its decadent tastes, Washington comes off sounding like the urban personification of that sheikh in Taken. Anyway, Fox News, 9 p.m. Be there or be not feeling bad about being an effete liberal East Coaster.
